Toru Furuya, the original Japanese voice of Tuxedo Mask from the Sailor Moon anime, will be making an appearance at the Anime Revolution anime convention in Vancouver August 16th to the 18th 2013.
Toru Furuya not only provided the voice of Tuxedo Mask as well as many other anime characters but he is also slated to reprise his role in the new Sailor Moon anime which was originally scheduled to be released this summer. He will be the guest of honour at the Anime Revolution convention, which last year played host to a number of Sailor Moon voice actors from the English dub in their celebration of the 20th Anniversary.
Anime Revolution has got yet another interview posted as part of their 20th anniversary celebration from their convention in Vancouver earlier this year. This interview is with Terri Hawkes, the voice of Sailor Moon.
Terri Hawkes discusses her role with the show, what it meant to her and what she thinks it means to other and the industry as a whole.
Here’s an interview with Stephanie “Sugar” Lyn Beard, the voice of Rini aka Sailor Mini Moon from Anime Revolution 2012 in Vancouver. Sugar talks about her early days on the radio, working on the zone and her work on Sailor Moon. She also plugs her new movie “For a Good Time, Call…” which is now playing in select theatres. You can watch the interview at the Anime Revolution site. It’s also embedded below for your convenience.
The Anime Revolution web site has posted a couple more great interviews from their convention where they had six Sailor Moon voice actors present to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary. First is an interview with Susan Roman, the voice of Sailor Jupiter and the second is an interview with Vince Corazza who played Alan Granger and eventually Tuxedo Mask in the later two season. Vince gives a nice explanation of the rythmo-band technique which was used to dub Sailor Moon which made the lip synching match up perfectly to the video.
You can watch the interviews on the Anime Revolution web site. We’ve also embedded them below for your convenience.
Last month at Anime Revolution in Vancouver there was a 20th Anniversary celebration including a panel featuring six of the cast members from the English dub. From left to right this panel includes Vince Corazza, voice of Tuxedo Mask, Stephanie “Sugar” Beard, voice of Rini, Ron Rubin, voice of Artemis, Terri Hawkes, voice of Sailor Moon, Susan Roman, voice of Sailor Jupiter and Katie Griffin, voice of Sailor Mars. The video is split into two parts. The quality isn’t perfect but the sound does come through pretty well so it’s well worth a listen.
Part 1 and Part 2 cover the entire panel. The third clip included below covered a half hour in the middle and is of higher quality. The voice actor portion begins 37 minutes into the first clip as it’s preceeded by some Karaoke and clips of many incarnations of Sailor Moon.
This past weekend at Anime Revolution in Vancouver there were six Sailor Moon voice actors in attendance. A fan recorded this panel which featured Katie Griffin, the voice of Sailor Mars, Susan Roman, the voice of Sailor Jupiter and Vincent Corazza, the voice of Tuxedo Mask.
The sound isn’t excellent because of interference from another panel next door but regardless the content of the panel is something fans will find quite interesting.
Anime Revolution is coming up August 17th to the 19th and as part of a Sailor Moon 20th anniversary event they got a great line up of voice actors from the Sailor Moon dub! There will be Terri Hawkes (Sailor Moon), Vince Corazza (Tuxedo Mask), Katie Griffin (Sailor Mars), Susan Roman (Sailor Jupiter), Stephanie Beard (Rini) and Ron Rubin (Artemis).
The site has the following to say about their Sailormoon 20th Anniversary Celebration:
Sailormoon 20th Anniversary Panel – Celebrate everything that is the wonderful world of Sailor Moon in this very special panel, featuring voice actors from the english dub, song numbers, including a special performance by Irulanne, visuals and all sorts of other fun stuff!
This is quite an amazing group of voice actors they’ve managed to score! While Sailor Moon roles changed a number of times, as the series went on for so long, these are largely the actors who are most memorable for the roles they did.
